2014 Through The Eyes Of An Asshole!

The year 2014 has been a memorable in terms sports, weather, news, politics, finance, and whatever the hell else you keep your eye on on a day to day basis. For starters, I turned thirty, and it’s because of this fact that I now find myself in fear of being a complete waste of organic matter until I eventually wilt […]

The team from Morgan Park got revenge on Saturday defeating Las Vegas in a dramatic comeback, and played admirably on Sunday in the Little League Championship Game against South Korea. Eventually the team from South Korea were too much as they erupted in the 6th-inning taking a 8-1 lead […]

Hawks Hold Serve

The Madhouse on Madison was quiet for most of the night yesterday, but in the end the captain Jonathan Toews scored a scrappy goal to give the Blackhawks the win and the lead in the series. The Blackhawks trailed the Wild for a good bit of the game after Erik Haula scored on his own rebound to give the United […]

Finals Rematch Dud!

Finals Rematch Dud!

Tonight’s Stanley Cup Finals rematch in Boston didn’t have the caché that it should have given the absence of Chicago’s Bryan Bickell and Patrick Kane but it was a pretty boring game regardless. The Bruins scored in the first period to take a 1-0 lead and after a quiet second Boston scored two goals in a mere 13 seconds to […]

Cornhole Navy Pier!

Cornhole Navy Pier!

[Editor’s note: the pedantic author impressed us just enough with his earnestness that we offer it as nothing more than further evidence of the decline of our species. If you are offended, then you are taking it way too seriously. It is parody…including a parody of worthy reading.] As I was driving to church this morning I saw an electronic […]

Soldier Field will be the place to be this weekend when the Bears try to slay the dragon and their own inner demons en route to hosting the Wild-Card Weekend.  Notwithstanding the 43-point lambasting last weekend, the Bears are hopeful that the return of Lance Briggs will allow for a effective defense.  Unfortunately, the offense-challenged Packers also have a player returning from injury who goes by the […]

‘Hawks Hit Halfway

‘Hawks Hit Halfway

The Blackhawks have played 39 games and are near the halfway mark of the regular season. Last night they won in pretty typical fashion by scoring five goals while giving up only two. Patrick Kane leads the team in goals and points with 22 and 49 respectively. The Blackhawks have the second most points in the NHL with 58.  Nonetheless, their record pales compared […]

“Champions” Classic Night of Hoops

“Champions” Classic Night of Hoops

Last night’s two college hoops games played at the United Center were the stuff that one would expect of the Final Four.  Well, except that the Final Four is many months off and will be played in “JerryWorld” in Arlington, Texas.  But last night we were all treated to a preview of what’s to come if the dance goes chalk. The Champions Classic […]

Derrick Rose’s Return Disrupted by Blaze

Derrick Rose’s Return Disrupted by Blaze

The hyper-hyped NBA opener between the Miami ring-bearers and Your Chicago Bulls was much ado about nothing other than a stark reminder that the Heat are, in fact, the champs and the Bulls are, also in fact, still a long way from threatening them.  The pre-game ring ceremony was pretty cool as the court was transformed into a large projector screen, but all was anti-climactic once the game started.   […]
